The Magical Pearl of Africa

A Little Bit About Uganda

Famously nicknamed ‘The Pearl of Africa’, Uganda lies astride the Equator in Eastern Africa between longitudes  29° and 35°E. and latitudes 4°N and 2°S, at an average altitude of 1,100 meters above sea- level.

 

Uganda experiences a temperate climate even though the majority of the country is within the tropics with temperatures between 16 – 26°C for the majority of the year (April – November). However, during the warmer months (December – March) temperatures can exceed 30°C.

 

Most of the country lies within the Nile basin with the Victoria Nile draining from Lake Victoria, one of the largest fresh water lakes in the world, into Lake Kyoga and from there into Lake Albert before flowing northwards  into South Sudan.

 

One of the most diverse countries in the region, Uganda has more than 50 different tribes and ethnicities. A melting pot of different cultures, Ugandans are very welcoming and hospitable.
